From this study (17 hours ago):
While at a conference, I experienced bradycardia and passed out. I went to the ER and all tests run (EKG, labs, CT Scan) were all normal. I am worried that it will happen again. The Estradol/Norethindrone Acetate is the only drug I am currently taking. I have no chronic illnesses.
From this study (1 week ago):
During exertion, experience shortness of breath and burning in leg muscles. Observed low heart rate.
From this study (4 weeks ago):
I was at the time of onset of health issues on a high-fat, low-carb vegan diet. Previously I had been on a no-fat, starch-based vegan diet, and in all those years never suffered any health issues, but wishing to bulk-up, switched to the high-fat approach. One day while sitting in my car reading I lost the ability to focus in on individual words. My eyes just couldn't (and still can't to a large degree) focus in on a small area. This did not occur gradually but all at once in one day. The next day, while reading a magazine in a waiting-room at a doctors office, I went completely blind in the center of my vision. I could make out forms, and shapes in the broad view, but had completely unable to make out individual areas. I was so alarmed I jumped up and immediately sped to the nearby ER, abandoning my cousin at her appointment. There the condition rapidly deteriorated, my vision further degrading to the point I thought I would be totally blind. When I went to the back, my first stop was a nurse who gave me a blood-pressure test. She said it was high. How high, I can't remember. The doctor performed an eye exam, but said he couldn't see anything wrong. He said it may be (just guessing) a diabetic issue, which was astounding to me, because at the time I consumed no carbs (far less than 100g a day), but was told that may have been inconsequential. I started taking the b12 and multivitamins AFTER symptoms developed.
